    I have the opportunity to trade my Eden 410T for a Trace 1248 (4x12").
    but I won't be able to try the Trace before the deal (too much distance).

    I plan to pair the 1248 with my Hiwatt DR201 and my Aguilar DB680/DB728 rig.

    I play music from blues to heavy rock.
    I like the 410T with the Hiwatt, but it's not fantastic, and maybe the 1248, designed for the Trace V8 would do a better job.

    So did anybody try both cabs ?

    And should I accept the deal ?

    I think I'll try this 1248, it's a closed cab, so it probably suit best my tube amps, and I think the 410T is not very good on the low end (the 410XLT is way better).

    I have a 1248 to my trace V6 and I dont really like it, there is no clarity in the sound. It sounds like someone has put a rug over the cab, muffly sound. My guess is that the 1248H is a little better. It works great with tube amps though but its not my sound. I'm lookin for a new cab.
    I dont know what the sunn 410T sounds like though.

    Maybe with the "bright box" => Trace 4x5 ?
